The man they once called "the Jimi Hendrix of hip-hop" has returned with his strongest work to date. Over a decade since his highly-acclaimed Directrix album dropped on Mo Wax , Divine Styler now steps up with his fourth studio album Def Mask, a dystopian/sci-fi concept album executed in the style of Blade Runner. Delivering highly-charged, well-crafted, gritty electronics with trademark lyrical intellect, and heavy synths that battle crushing snares layered with futuristic verse -- it's a killer, but it's also a cerebral breath of fresh air. For those unaware of the artist, Divine Styler first entered the frame as a member of Ice T's Rhyme Syndicate. He has worked with DJ Shadow, House Of Pain, Quannum, and Daedalus, to name a few.
"Unclassifiable, esoteric and revered by the hip-hop cognoscenti, Divine Styler releases his first album in 14 years, Def Mask – a tour de force of hardcore beats and dystopian science fiction." - The Guardian (UK)
“An anomaly within rap. He’s clearly reverential to the art form, yet he chooses to blaze his own trail rather than waste energy seeking acceptance or contextualisation.” - DJ Shadow
Also available in a limited edition double vinyl gatefold LP with stunning artwork from renowned urban artist, Will Barras.
